I writing my thoughts out here on the blog, so that I have a place to keep my ideas.
The first thing that needs to happen is replacing the picket sections of the fence. Then everything needs a fresh coat of paint.
The chickens will not stay out of the garden, and keep scratching dirt on the walk way. Any ideas, chicken owners?
I'm working on my sitting area in the garden. I'm not sure how it will work out, so for now, I have my chairs on the walkway. (I think I mentioned we don't enter the house this way) I just got my table yesterday, and I'll show you them tomorrow.
I've made improvements in my plantings as I added two new roses this year!
This is the Princess Alexandra of Kent rose from David Austin Roses. So lovely!
I've also sewn my zinnia seeds and I'm eager to see them come up!
This garden is my cutting garden also and includes coneflower, blackeyed susans, feverfew, hydrangea, peonies, hollyhock.
Part of the improvements for the front garden is the replacement of our living room bow window which looks out into the garden. This is an original window in this thirty plus year old house and has seen better days. I'd like something flat not bowed, as our long term plans are for this space to have a porch, so the garden space will change.
Most of the plants will move to an area I am dreaming of transforming. The chickens are there right now - a fenced in dog run. Their coop is attached to it. But if we move the chickens to the pasture and fence them in there, where they can free range etc, then we'd remove the fencing and I would use the concrete pad to create a sitting area. My eventual dream would be to have a 'she shed' space. A place I can use to host tea parties, bridal showers and baby showers. Of course, the shed wouldn't be big enough to have everyone in it, but it would be a center point of the event and tables and chairs could be placed around it! I consider all of this as part of my gardens.
Both photos found on my Pinterest Board 'She Shed' found here.
Isn't this fun?
What are you dreaming of for your garden?
